Mimi really is Superman

My Mom was diagnosed with small cell carcinoma last October. Lungs, liver and nodes riddled with this crap. She's been on some of the nastiest chemo for 10 sessions spaced every 3 weeks. We've seen miraculous results.

Her latest PET scan shows one tumor at 1.2-1.3 cm in the left lung with an astounding "ZERO" cell activity. In PETS, this figure is called SUV (uptake value). Her's isn't even registering anything at all. Everything, as in EVERYTHING else is gone.

So, she's Superman. And in honor of Mom, I've changed my cell phone ring tone for when she calls me to this song by Hannah Stinkin Montana because it's just too appropriate to pass up.

I spared you all looking at HM's video and instead, included a video with the lyrics (slightly butchered due to the illiteracy of the original YouTube poster :)

Cheers Mom!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I've been wondering how your mom has been. Very glad to hear that the news is all good. It's amazing that you two had to deal with cancer at the same time.

Thanks for the Mom props everyone :) She'll be getting a good break here until after our vacation in June then there will be another pow wow to start the Avastin.

She's just got to get over the awful worn out feeling after finishing chemo. Vacation will help.

She looks just great! And I'm quite happy to report that she won't need the stupid steroids for the Avastin :)
